I do not know too much about the Printers’ Ball in Chicago (I have yet to attend one), but I do know it’s not actually a ball :) From what I understand, if you are into “readings and performances, live printmaking demos and workshops, exhibitions, and food and drink tastings”, you should be there. This year, Spudnik Press Cooperative will be organizing the event at the Hubbard Street Lofts. The event will be held on July 27th from noon to 6pm at 1821 W. Hubbard Street in Chicago, IL. Right now, it is still up in the air as to whether or not I will be able to open my studio up during the event, but I will confirm when I figure it all out. Anyway, here’s more information. Currently, I’m en route to San Francisco for a long 4th of July weekend. I’m planning on doing some lots of hiking, eating and sightseeing. Ah, yes, and I’m bringing two moms with me. One for me and one for my friend Kathy, who will be hosting us all. Have a happy 4th of July!
